* Steve Silberman's audiences almost always have great bass. * Several of the MOTB (Mouth of the Beast) recordings have excellent bass response.

Here are a few more:


The first and third show of a run at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley that was their “home turf” for years. These represent a wildly rejuvenated band a year and half after Jerry’s recovery from a diabetic coma. The band had new digital equipment and were calmly dazzling the home crowd.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1980-05-11.fob.glassberg.motb-0052.97522.flac16 I figure this is about as good as an audience recording that can possible exist. Unfortunately, there the left channel is muffled for the last three songs of the first set. Otherwise, this is a simply marvelous recording coupled with a very great performance.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1983-10-15.fob.senn441.silberman.miller.93751.sbeok.flac16 Super hot show with killer sound. Highlights for me are exceptional versions of “Feel Like A Stranger”, “Let It Grow” and “Playing In The Band.” Strangely, all are Bob Weir songs.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1977-10-29.ecm990.maizner.miller.108010.flac16 For many Deadheads, 1977 is a pinnacle year. I don’t necessarily agree with that, but can’t deny that the band is uncharacteristically tight throughout the year. This is a rare excellent audience from that period.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1990-03-15.28293.sbeok.shnf One of the top three GD concerts that I ever attended personally. Marvelous performance and a good representation of what I actually heard that night since I was immediately next to the “Taper’s Section” where this was recorded from inside the venue. The second set is golden all the way through


Have fun!

P.S. This is why I love the new matrix recordings. Best of both worlds with plenty of Phil to go 'round. If you're interested I have several excellent recommendations

Hope these help.
